During the day, there will be free Heri Heri meals while stocks last. Take a seat in the grass to listen to the performance or bring your meal. Heri heri is a one-pot dish that dates back to the time of slavery in Suriname. Enslaved people on the plantations had to cook with what was available, such as cassava, sweet potato, plantain, bakkeljauw and egg. We now know this combination of ingredients as ‘heri heri,’ which means ‘heal’ or ‘whole’. More and more, it is also eaten during Keti Koti.
